The woman has made serious charges against the film actor, saying he kicked her in the stomach when she was three months pregnant.

In a complaint given to Superintendent of Police (Rural) Rakesh Jolly, the woman who married the actor's younger brother Minauzzidin Siddiqui on 31 May 2016, has alleged that her in-laws have been asking for dowry and misbehaving with her. She has also alleged that Nawazuddin beat her up on 28 September.

The woman had first approached the Kotwali police station, but when they did not entertain her complaint, she met the superintendent of police (rural) along with her mother, father and uncle.

Police said they will investigate the matter and act accordingly to law.
